Monday Feb. 2nd, 1914

Snowed a.m. until about eleven o'clock the sun shone until [page ripped] then clouded under the rest of the day, snow'd very little p.m. Mora and Maud went to school. Sidney went to the mill early for corn. Frank Taber came back with him, he is selling ess. and ex. of all kinds. I bought some winter green, it was good alright, then Sidney went up to C. Hoyet's to cut wood, Sidney rec'd a letter from Mr. Higley, I sent one to Mina.

  3. Saw your listing on Geneabloggers. I too have a website where I daily transcribe my grandmother's journal entries from the 1930s. It looks like your great grandmother had excellent handwriting. For me that is probably the hardest part - trying to figure out what she wrote!

  4. I think it's fascinating peeking into bygone lives through the journals they've left behind, and I'm heartily thankful to those who have found those books and taken the time to transcribe and share what the owners had written. It opens a window on time, and provides some small insights on the way things really were in those times.

    I found your blog today, courtesy of an announcement at GeneaBloggers. I look forward to following your transcriptions!
